Here are two worthy recipients of your contributions:
Diabetes Center, University of California, San Francisco
"The continued growth of private funding resources provides the
support we need to continue the most promising Stem Cell research,"
says Dr. Bluestone. "We couldn't be more pleased with the recognition
we're receiving and the practical emphasis Mr. Cohen provides. The
United States is a leading source of breakthrough developments in stem
cell research. Private donations are a major source of funding that
will keep us on pace."
Ways of Giving
University of California, Irvine
* Geneticist Doug Wallace, a member of the National Academy of
Sciences, uses embryonic stem cells from mice to study human genetic
diseases that are associated with mutations in the DNA of
mitochondria. Mitochondria generate the chemical energy that powers
all mammalian cells.
* Geneticist Arthur Lander uses embryonic stem cells from mice to
help create genetically modified mice for studies on gene function.
* Neuroscientist Anne Calof uses neural stem cells from mice to
understand stem cell function and the potential use of stem cells in
fighting neurological disease.
* Biomedical engineer Abraham Lee uses neural stem cells from mice
and humans to develop micro-devices that help researchers understand
the factors dictating stem cell differentiation.
* Ping Wang, Director of the UCI Center for Diabetes Research and
Treatment, and colleagues are trying to understand how stem cell
therapies can aid treatments for diabetes.
* Neuroscientist Phil Schwartz, who also is affiliated with the
Children's Hospital of Orange County, teaches a course showing
researchers how to grow both neural and human embryonic stem cells.
"Your generous support will enable the UCI Stem Cell Research Center
to build a research program that addresses the needs of thousands of
patients in Orange County and beyond.
